Parole Supervision and Treatment
Parole is the conditional release of a person convicted of a crime prior to the expiration of their term of imprisonment. When released from prison, the former prisoner is subject to parole supervision and treatment as well as specific conditions for their release. Violation of the conditions can result in the resumption of their imprisonment.
Decision makers and stakeholders include officials within the state's Department of Corrections, parole board, parole agents, parolees and their families and community service providers.
